Meghan Freed Quoted in Connecticut Law Tribune Article Paying Tribute to LGBT Lawyer Irene C. Olszewski
Meghan Freed was interviewed for a recent Connecticut Law Tribune article entitled “Colleagues Offer Sad Farewell to Attorney Known for LGBT Work,” which paid tribute to Irene C. Olszewski, one of the first lawyers in Connecticut to focus on matters that affect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender clients.
The Connecticut legal community, and especially practitioners of law who serve LGBT clients and families, were saddened to learn of Irene’s passing.
In addition, according to Meghan, the “former clients [of Irene] I have met were deeply affected by the loss of her on a personal level.”
In addition to representing her clients, Irene was a writer.
She was an embracer [of social media]. I don’t know anyone more prolific. Irene has been on the forefront of writing about [LGBT] issues in the state, and was one of the first who was really focused on LGBT clients and how the law impacted the individual.
